Risks of Pipe Smoking

Although fewer teens are smoking cigarettes these days, pipe smoking is on the rise among adolescents. Unfortunately, pipe smoking carries just about the same risks for tobacco-related illnesses as cigar and cigarette smoking, according to the American Cancer Society. Pipe smokers are at risk for developing cancers of the bladder, colon and rectum, esophagus, kidney, larynx, lung, pancreas and stomach, as well as heart disease, stroke and emphysema.
